11 previously unpublished portraits of the King of Pop will be auctioned later this year

Tomorrow will commemorate the one-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death and while fans continue to mourn the pop legend, previously unpublished pictures of the star have re-emerged and will be up for auction in December.

Shot by French photographer Arno Bani back in 1999, the most powerful shot, which depicts a sombre looking Jackson in a studded blazer with one eye framed in blue glitter, was pitted as a possible cover for his tenth and final album Invincible, released in 2001.

Fans will be able to get their hands on the rare pieces of pop memorabilia at the end of the year when they will be auctioned off by Pierre Berge & Associes. But, they may want to start saving now as bidding is expected to start at a hefty $1,228.
